This particular story surfaced on Wednesday with AS claiming sources indicated to the publication that representatives for the Liverpool attacker had offered him to the La Liga champions.
The story also detailed Barcelona's view that Salah was a fallback option if Antoine Griezmann’s rumoured move to the club did not work out, and that the representatives and the club were working together to find an agreeable number to entice Liverpool to sell.
However, Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas has directly responded to AS’ twitter account denying that any such offer had occurred.
“This never happened,” Abbas said from his Twitter account, quoting the AS story in his tweet. “AS, you need better sources.”
Salah continues to recover from a shoulder injury sustained in the Champions League final during a collision with Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos.
He hopes to be ready in time to play some part in the World Cup however, and was named to Egypt’s roster.
